Apple Pie Smoothie

Here's another yummy smoothie I made the kids for dessert.  Very simple with basic ingredients on hand.

This is a paleo & clean eating option. 

Apple Pie Smoothie

1 whole apple, cored & chopped (I used a Gala)
1 whole banana, frozen*
2 cups almond milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon almond butter (or peanut butter)
1-2 tablespoons honey, to taste

Put all ingredients into blender or smoothie maker adding honey last and blend until smooth.  Can add a dash of cinnamon for a topping also.

Side notes:
Depending on your preference you can add an extra tablespoon of almond butter.
I peel and cut up my bananas and freeze them individually in baggies so they are ready when I need them.
You could also add a scoop of About Time Whey Cinnamon Swirl protein powder for an added protein smoothie.
